AAFP: Our New Supporter

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of the American Academy of Family Physicians. Its mission is to advance the values of Family Medicine by promoting humanitarian, educational and scientific initiatives that improve the health of all people. The AAFP Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and supports more than 20 programs each year. SOAR Student-Run Free Clinic (SRFC) was recently the recipient of the Family Medicine Cares USA grant. The grant is designed to help free clinics care for the uninsured in the United States, this program establishes new free clinics and provides grants to existing clinics for the purchase of equipment. In addition, Family Medicine Cares USA gives AAFP members, residents, and students the opportunity to volunteer their time and talent. We are so grateful for this support!
